Annual Report


Trustees of Lee Public Library.

In submitting our annual report we are pleased to note
that there appears to be an increased interest taken by the
citizens of the town, and especially by the young people.
The appropriations for the library have been so limited that
we have not been able to increase the number of volumes
as we would wish, but we have endeavored to make the best
possible use of the money at Our command.

While we may have made some mistakes in the purchas-
ing of books, it has been our aim to procure books of a
high moral standard, by well known authors, and at the
same time interest the patrons of the library. Our friends
have kindly remembered the library by gifts of valuable
books and magazines, for all of which we are very grate-
ful. "We hope that in the near future by having larger
appropriations, and an increased interest among the citi-
zens, that we shall be able to so increase the number of
books and enhance its general usefulness, that it will be a
valuable source of information, and become the pride of

For a detailed account of the receipts and disbursements
for the year ending Feb. 15, 1897, and catalogue of new
books, we would respectfully refer you to the report of the
Librarian which is herewith submitted.
